During the event, an HPD officer will be posted where a bin to dispose of unwanted medication will be located.

***CROSSING GUARD SUBSTITUTE NEEDED*** We are in need of substitute crossing guards that are available to work with little or no advanced notice. Would be for a half an hour in the morning and/or afternoon if one of our regular crossing guards are in need of a day off. If you are interested or know of someone that might be, come up to City Hall for details and an application!!


First day of school is August 20th! Please understand that crossing guards are ON DUTY ONLY during the following times:
Hwy 124 N at Elizabeth 7:20-7:50 A.M. and 3:15-3:45 P.M.
Hwy 124 E at Hudson 7:35-8:05 A.M. and 3:10-3:40 P.M.
Rt. B at Hudson 7:20-7:50 A.M. and 3:15-3:45 P.M.
Wesley at Hwy 124 E 7:35 – 8:05 A.M. and 3:10 and 3:40 P.M.
These times were set by a contract between the State Highway Dept., the School and the City. In the past some students were crossing either before or after the crossing guards are supposed to be there. If your child crosses earlier or later than the times shown above, there will not be a crossing guard available to cross him/her. For their safety, PLEASE do not send your child to cross unattended.
We hope everyone has a fun and safe school year!
